Book Review: Wholly Mary

It feels like ages ago that I finally got a moment to sit down and read Chris Padgett's new book Wholly Mary Mother of God.  It was a book I knew I wanted to read as soon as I saw it.  The problem, of course, was finding the time to sit down with this book.

Once I found a few moments here and there to sit down and read this book, I was transported to a guided tour of who Our Blessed Mother is.  There were a few moments when I read this book that I felt like it wasn't all that different from many of the other books I have read on the Blessed Mother, but there were many more moments where I found myself reading what Chris Padgett had to say and thinking that he expertly explained whatever aspect he was currently addressing in the book.

So who might benefit from reading this book?  I'd say anyone who is looking to learn more about who Mary is.  It would be a great book for someone who doesn't understand Marian devotion, or anyone who would like a good introduction to Marian devotion.  This book really has something in it for everyone.

For more information on Wholly Mary-Mother of God please visit The Catholic Company. They are also a great source for a Catechism of the Catholic Church or a Catholic Bible.

I was provided with a complimentary review copies of this book by The Catholic Company Reviewer Program and the publisher, Servant Books in exchange for my honest review.  Because I have two copies, I will be hosting a giveaway of this book starting August 5th and closing on August 15th August 19th and closing on August 29th.  Be sure to check back for you chance to win a copy of this book.
